Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: gd69-03-02 Question...which is better?

I used to think 2/28 was better, now I'm not so sure. The 2/28 and 3/2 shows are pretty comparable, I'd say, but I'd still give a slight edge to 2/28.

The Lovelight from 2/28 is better, with a wild endless jam at the beginning, certainly one of the longest LL jams of this period!

But The Other One from 3/2 is the better of the two, the Crypical Reprise especially, being one of the best ever imo.

The other big factors are that while 2/28's Dark Star is really interesting, 3/2's sort of falls flat for me.

And while Alligator jam from 2/28 is shorter, tighter, and has some crazy unique stuff going on from Phil, the 3/2 jam is incredible - this jam recently really clicked for me - it's long and wild, with lots of great Jerry jamming, and an astonishing peak near the end.

Really in the end they're both great shows, you just can't go wrong; this whole run is some of the best music of '69!

i used to always go back and forth on which shows i liked better. i don't know why i always felt the need to pick one. now i just settle on the fact that they're pretty equal and each has something unique to offer.

can't forget about 2/27 and 3/1 either.

"this whole run is some of the best music of '69"

i'd have to say this IS the best music of '69. some of the best ever.

yes sir! THE Dark Star on 2/27, and one of the best show openers and second sets on 3/1. Ya there all too good :)
